An Electronicstalk guide
Start with the news release System host board for energy and medical sectors from Kontron, which we summarised at the time by saying "Kontron has introduced the PICMG 1.3 system host PCI-761, a slot-card-sized industrial server board equipped with the Intel Q57 Express chipset for asynchronous real-time applications.". Several months prior to that, we featured the news release Tyco announces JEDEC-based memory module from Tyco Electronics: "Tyco Electronics has introduced a very low-profile (VLP) double-data-rate 3 (DDR3) dual in-line memory module (DIMM) socket designed around JEDEC industry standards. ".
In December 2010, we covered the news from Mistral Solutions - take a look at Development board for HMI/automotive applications which says: "Mistral Solutions has announced Craneboard, a low-cost ARM-based development board that offers designers a fully open-source printed circuit board (PCB) and design to reduce development costs.".
Take a look also at the news release from XP Power, AC/DC power supplies suit harsh environments, as well as GTK offers customisable 27-colour LCD module from GTK, and LCD display modules for gauges and meters from Saelig.
Hall-sensor IC for low power HMI applications (December 2010)
The AS5013 contactless magnetic encoder IC monitors the displacement of a magnet incorporated in a knob relative to its centre position and provides X and Y position information via an IC interface.
Data modems dedicated to telematics and telemetry (December 2010)
The LISA-H and LISA-U UMTS/HSDPA data modems from U-blox are dedicated to telematics and telemetry applications that typically require only data and not the full 3G bandwidth.
